Strength Tips & Training Videos

Tip for improving speed and strength off the floor. PUSH the slack out of the bar. Find your heels and press them through the ground. This allows you to: 💥push the slack out and create tension to the bar. 💥sit back, find tension in your hamstrings and easily find your strongest starting position. 💥get a smooth, explosive start off the floor without the weight jerking you forward. Practice with a light weight and make the bar float off the floor (for a 1 one thousand count) before exploding off the floor to lockout. When deadlifting heavy you won’t be able to float the bar. Create the same tension (don’t hold for a 1 one thousand count) and drive it off the floor as fast as possible. #powerlifting #squat #bench #deadlift #strengthtips #fitness #technique
